but also the there's been a disengagement on the part of the obama administration itself. >> woodruff: what do you mean? >> they view iraq as just another country. they don't have the same emotional or psychological or even foreign policy stake in it that the previous administration had. so i think the united states can't solve all the problems in iraq certainly but it's not playing as active role in mediating these internal issues. >> woodruff: what's the relationship rajiv between the people of iraq and their government. how is that working? >> depends on which people. for the majority shiite population they see the government has largely working in their interests. the others look at the government and say these people aren't here to help me and serve me. i think there is a desire among many iraqis for a big tent, more secular government. but that's not the shape of the political system that they have today. in my view this is a result of the legacy of the american occupation and our military intervention there. the decisions made almost ten years ago today deba'ath phiing the country, e

joking around with dennis rodman. the united states, the obama administration, right now taking the north's threats of a nuclear attack very seriously. the pentagon has just announced it will beef up america's defense missile systems out on the west coast. in california, oregon, washington state. let's go straight to cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence, watching what's going on. chris, a lot of us are stunned by this decision but update us on what is going on. >> wolf, we just came out of a briefing where we learned the pentagon is going to spend a billion dollars to put new intercepter missiles on the west coast. now, that plan includes react investigating a missile field that the obama administration deactivated just a few years ago when it concluded that north korea didn't pose enough of a threat. if a nuclear missile is ever fired at the united states, this is the best hope to stop it. 30 interceptor missiles which can be launched from ground silos in alaska and california. now the pentagon is deploying up to 14 more. >> the reason we're doing what we're doing and the reason w

the lines that the obama administration has, if republicans won't give it all on loopholes a anything. >> but they will. >> if they do, then i think we are in business, because, you know, then i think there is something to talk about. >> i don't mean to speak for the entire party but, barney, i mean, you know better than anybody how it goes. you get somebody in front of the camera. you're in front of the camera and you're a first turn or second turn democrat from massachusetts, barney are you giving on entitlements? you say no. you ask me is a first or second-term republican? no, we just gave them tax increases. we are not doing it again. but then you get the cameras off and people say, okay i'll give you this, you give me that. taking care of the long-term debt is so important. >> i'm closer to you now than when you were a first or second-term republican. >> you like him more. >> he didn't say that. >> personally i always liked him. i would be asked by a reporter in the midst of a negotiation will you do this or that? i'd have to ask the reporters, how many votes do you have in the s
tests were very rigorous. in fact be assumed obama administration's recovery program would fail, that it would not only fail to make things far worse, which is curious given the entity that created those stress test is a treasury department given the task of promoting and carrying out the recovery program. it's not the writer of the test i questioned, but rather their necessity. peter seems to accept the assumption they were needed in or to restore investor confidence in banks. peter is correct the test or something of a gamble to secretary geithner. but perhaps an unnecessary one. investors were already beginning to return to banks long before the results of the stress tests were reported. i do agree with the assessment of the outcome peter makes. it exposed alarmism of expert for what it was. another important conclusion that peter elaborates as they show how far off base mark to market accounting is for evaluating a set that banks tend to hold. banks hold their assets for the cash flow, not for firesale value in the cash flow of assets performed far better than the mark to ma
. if you look the last four years and a policy the obama administration has put in place, it is higher taxes, and burdensome regulations, have made it more expensive for job creators to create jobs and have resulted in sluggish economic growth. we have had .8% growth for the past four years. you would hope the democrats will be looking at policies that will grow the economy. what you're hearing is it will be more of the same. we are talking about a $1 trillion tax increase, more expensive -- more spending and nothing to save social security and medicare reform and those programs in a way that will align them with the feature demographics of this country. it is more the same policies with regard to their budget. we think there is a better way and will look for opportunities to offer amendments that will put that out -- that will point that out. the democrat budget will make it more difficult for stock traders to get back to work. -- for job creators to creat e jobs to get people back to work. >> there was a story today that talked-about the number of democrats griping about the presiden
people who don't like the obama administration's use of drone on the right not because they're worried about collateral damage, because quite frankly, they shoulder brush those ideas. it's because they think we need to be there on foot and own that land, which brings me to the drum beat, the reason i wanted to take her call specifically, and it just was lucky that she was kind of in cue as far as how long she'd been on line was that we're hearing the same kind of drum beat around syria right now. i think it's reuters putting up this thing. jacki: on senator graham and mccain shockingly. hal: exactly. [ laughter ] jacki: who want to go to war against everybody. hal: there's been a charge by the syrian government that rebels have been employing nuclear weapons and they've been floating this as a false flaggish kind of thing our soldiers are getting gaged by the rebels. jacki: i thought it was the other way around. hal: our concern is that hasaad has them and is going to use them. they are saying the rebels themselves supported by the u.s. and others are using chemical weapons on governme

to a government crippled by international aid shortfalls and the obama administration last month unfroze hundreds of millions in assistance to the overnment of president mahmoud abbas that had been held up by kong. diane, democratic caller. are you saving for retirement? caller: i am. i had my money in the stock market when it crashed. i was very aggressive, because i was 45 -- between 45 and 50, and i thought i could be aggressive, because i was managing my own money and i lost almost all of my money in the stock market. it was really a bad thing. so i'm a realtor, so when i get money now, i set up an i.r.a. for myself, but i don't put it in the stock market. i put anytime something called lending club. so i put a little bit of money in there first to see what, you know, how it was and how it would go. and it went really well, so i dumped all my money in there and watched it grow. it's an amazing program. i hear a lot of people fearful about the stock market, and i can see why. host: diane, how do those lending clubs work? >> lending clubs, what it does is loan money to anybody that needs money.
on the record. the obama administration says that if that is true, that would be the red line the president has set in the past but they haven't said whether they have the intelligence evidence to prove it. i spoke to an israeli high government source who said we're not saying anything about that right now for good reason but they promised it would be part of the private conversations between the president and the prime minister. john and christine. >> john, it really does seem like this symbolic trip, was supposed to be a symbolic trip has brought in new urgency with what's going on in syria. let's bring in chris and katherine. >> i was wondering, what are you hearing from folks on the ground about iran? you know, the conversation between the president and the prime minister. is there some sense that there's going to be an announcement at the end of this trip one way or the other or is this all behind the scenes and we're not going to see anything publicly until later down the road? >> reporter: there's no question both leaders will talk about it because they will be asked about it when they h
